San Francisco Police Arrest Suspect Wanted for Threatening and Attacking Muni Drivers 18-043

On Wednesday March 7, 2018 at approximately 7:08 PM, San Francisco Police officers from the Richmond District were dispatched to the corner of Sacramento Street and Cherry Street regarding a Muni driver being threatened by a passenger. 

The Muni driver had arrived at the end of the line when she observed a male passenger who remained on the bus. After determining the passenger didn’t need medical assistance, the driver informed him the bus had reached the end of the route and all passengers are required to exit. The passenger made threats to harm the driver before ultimately exiting the bus and fleeing on foot. 

Responding officers located and detained a subject matching the suspect description on the 3700 block of California Street. While conducting their investigation, officers were approached by a male victim who stated he was threatened and attacked by the detainee. The victim told police he was inside a medical facility on California Street when the suspect threatened to harm him, pushed the victim and fled the facility. 

Based on evidence and witness statements obtained from the scene, the suspect, later identified as Eugene Stevens, a 51 year-old San Francisco resident, was arrested and booked into the San Francisco County Jail on criminal felony counts of threats and misdemeanor battery. Due to pending identification matters, Stevens’ booking photo will not be released at this time. 

During the course of the investigation, officers also determined Stevens was the same suspect wanted for attacking a Muni driver on March 3, 2018 in the Richmond district. Stevens was also booked for felony battery on a transit employee and felony criminal threats. 

While an arrest has been made, this remains an open and active investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. You may remain anonymous.
